Four feature fiction films, all recipients of production support from the Swedish Film Institute’s Talent to Watch initiative for emerging talents, were showcased at the Nordic Film Market 2024. 

At Nordic Film Market, the four production funded projects were presented in a conversation with the members of the selection committee, including director Nathalie Álvares Mesén, journalist Wanda Bendjelloul, and SVT Drama’s Head of Development Malin Nevander. The discussion was moderated by journalist and film festival consultant Wendy Mitchell.

The Talent to Watch initiative, introduced by the Swedish Film Institute, seeks to empower and showcase emerging voices throughout Sweden. Since 2021, the programme has been supporting projects with development funds, and it has recently unveiled the chosen recipients for production support.
